Point Loma Planners’ Recommendation That “Bogus” Signs Be Replaced and Official Signs Removed Continues to Split Local Community
CBS8 reports that the Peninsula Planning Committee’s decision last night – May 16th – to find a compromise on the “bogus” stop signs continues to divide and rile the local hilltop community in Point Loma.
The Committee voted 4 to 3 to send a recommendation to Councilmember Faulconer’s office that the controversial stop signs that appeared and installed by anonymous parties, outside of city regulations, will be replaced – there’s 2 of them – and that 3 official stop signs in the area be removed.
The reportedly “packed crowd” was disappointed with the final vote during the planners regular monthly meeting at the Point Loma Library, with neither side in the debate/ issue satisfied. Will Scott, a local neighbor who favored the new stop signs, was quoted:
“We’re neither [excited or upset]. This recommendation was clearly a compromise.”
